Full description

An opportunity has arisen to purchase a substantial four-bedroom detached home offering spacious family accommodation to include four reception rooms, ample driveway parking and extensive gardens all situated on this quiet lane a short stroll from the amenities in the popular village of Croston.

This discretely positioned brick-built property with uPVC double glazing throughout is accessed via a hardwood front door with glazed insert under a canopy porch which leads to a spacious reception/dining hall. Illumination from the large window to the front is supplemented by pendant lighting and the mahogany-spindle staircase rises to the first floor under which is cloaks hanging space and storage.

Going through a mahogany panelled door, the good-sized lounge features a deep bay window to the front giving extensive views over the well-established front garden and in addition to pendant lighting the room is fitted with wall lights. The hole-in-the-wall living flame gas fire is a lovely feature and warms the room along with two radiators. The spacious triple-aspect living/dining kitchen boasts a window to the front, French doors with glazed side panels to the side and two windows to the rear.  The up-lit living area features a stone hearth with a log burning stove with beam over and is also warmed by radiators.  Varnished English oak flooring stretches through from here to the bright dining area overlooking the York stone paving and into the garden through the French doors. The dining area has a radiator and contains built-in wall and floor cupboards set into an archway.

An exposed beam crosses the ceiling of the tiled-floor kitchen having a range of cream and mahogany-coloured wall and base units, shelving and two glazed display cabinets. Space for a refrigerator and plumbing for an automatic dishwasher are in addition to a two-oven gas Aga with chimney style extractor over, and a four-ring gas hob is set above a gas grill and oven.  The side-draining double stainless-steel sink unit has a swan neck mixer tap and is set below a convenient long shelf, while splash-back tiling extends around the kitchen above the work surfaces.  From the kitchen, a cosy study/dining room boasts a range of fitted wooden office furniture comprising cupboards, drawers and two desk areas.  In the corner is a log burning stove set into a tiled surround and a radiator is underneath the window to the rear, supplying light in addition to the central pendant.  Also from the kitchen is a walk-in pantry which has base units, a fitted cold marble slab and a window to the side.

A further door from the kitchen leads back to the reception/dining hallway and, in addition through the cloaks area, a room which could be a bedroom, study or playroom has a radiator below a window to the rear and a central pendant light.  Two downstairs cloakrooms both have windows to the rear and radiators to warm them, the first having a tiled floor, base units with inset wash hand basin, a low-flush w.c. and splash tiling with mirror.  The second, adjacent to the downstairs bedroom or study, has the potential to become an en-suite, store room, wet room or airing room and has a single drainer stainless-steel sink unit with hot and cold water supply.

The tiled-floor utility room has an exit door to the rear, a window to the side and is fitted with base units having an inset stainless-steel sink unit.  Plumbed for an automatic washing machine, the utility room has space for a tumble dryer and shelving with ample coat hanging space beneath.  The w.c. has a quarry tiled floor and a window to the rear.

To the first floor, the landing with mahogany spindle balustrade has a Velux window and loft access point.  An airing cupboard houses the hot water tank and shelving for linen storage.  All the bedrooms and bathrooms on this floor are warmed by radiators.

In the dual-aspect master bedroom, cream coloured wardrobes are fitted to two walls, one of which provides access to further loft storage, whilst lower level cupboards and a dressing table co-ordinate with the wardrobes.  Two uPVC double-glazed windows to the side and one to the rear provide plenty of natural light and for evening ambiance there is pendant lighting and there is a wall-mounted air conditioning unit.  The coloured three-piece en-suite with window to the rear comprises a low-flush w.c , pedestal wash hand basin and shower cubicle with power shower.  Wall-tiled to mid-height, the en-suite has an extractor fan to remove the steam.

Bedrooms two and four have a window to the rear, and the en-suite to bedroom two has a pampas-shaded three-piece suite comprising low-flush w.c, pedestal wash hand basin and shower cubicle with power shower.  The walls are tiled to mid-height and there is a shaving point.  The window to bedroom three is to the front of the property and overlooks paddocks, whilst bedroom four is plumbed with a pedestal wash hand basin.

The family bathroom with window to the rear and extractor fan is fitted with a white five-piece suite comprising a pedestal wash hand basin, low-flush w.c., bidet, panelled bathtub and tiled power shower cubicle.  The floor is laid with cork tiles and ceramic tiles up to the dado rail provide protection from splashes.

Outside, the property has the benefit of two driveways and entrances.  The first, via Shevington Causeway into Carvers Brow, leads to a gravelled parking area for several cars.  The rear garden has a covered log store and greenhouse with electricity – the perfect place to oversee the raised vegetable beds with a pathway leading to the orchard which has old varieties of apple, pear, plum and damson trees.  The lawn runs to Turflands and the views behind include attractive brick barns and the village church.  

The second driveway is accessed via Turflands and leads to the detached garage with up-and-over door, power and a workshop to the rear which could also be accessed from Carvers Brow.  To the side of the house is a stone flagged patio, pond with railings around and an extensive lawn with mature herbaceous borders and established trees.  A useful outside tap is available.

Two solar panels are positioned on the main roof and provide heating for the water supply.  Fifteen photo-voltaic panels are positioned on the garage roof and produce electricity which feed directly into the National Grid via a tariff.
